Montage: 22 Exterior Glass Doors

This very minute I’m in the quad awaiting the annual Maypole dances at my son’s school. It’s gorgeous out —green, flowering, and sunny. When the kids were small, I’d perch on the playground bench equipped with my laptop. These days, it just doesn’t seem worth the effort since conditions are less than ideal. Although we live on the “garden” level, first floor Back Bay, Boston condos aren’t outfitted with much in the way of outdoor space. On  a whim, we looked at two houses across the river in Cambridge. One had such a lovely city-like patio and yard, I was tempted.

I’ve pulled together a collection of 22 exterior spaces all accessed by wonderful (mostly) glass exterior doors. There are the obvious sliding doors and French doors, but these are unique wood slat and metal-frame versions. I’ve included plenty of traditionally-hinged doors, though their shape, size, and applications are anything but run-of-the-mill. An  accordion door is incredibly appealing, and sadly not so common in the Northeast. (One could do accordion room dividers, however. I’ve seen a few amazing photos of these on Pinterest.) Interiors with sliding barn doors have become hugely popular; I found one outdoor example, included here. The most amazing exterior doors, aside from having a garage door in your living room, which I’ve always thought was cool, are glass pivot doors. I’ve found a number of gorgous examples for you. Every category could easily get its own post—which do you like best?

Montage: 56 Spaces Decorated with Giraffes

I think the first time I really noticed a giraffe from a design perspective (besides when I was at the zoo), was almost three years ago when my friend’s baby was chewing on a rubber one. You know it—the ubiquitous Sophie the Giraffe Teether by Vulli. (If you’re not up on tot stuff, guarantee you’ll notice one tomorrow.) When Martha Stewart shared the cover of the September issue with a practically life sized stuffed giraffe in her grandchild’s nursery, I knew I was past due for a post. So, now six months later, I’ve finally pulled one together. My punishment for delay is your treat — I have over 50 images for you. I know a lot of other blogs have noticed the trend too, but I hope a bunch of these are new for you. There’s quite a few nurseries with giraffes, but plenty of grownup spaces too.

Montage: 38 Rooms with Long-Armed Sconces

A few years ago it was the bare bulb.  Now everyone’s hanging these super spindly sconces in unexpected places (and sometimes they even have bare bulbs). Over sinks and sofas, from beams, and reaching straight across kitchens, they’re an interesting element, and certainly functional. Some have a mid-century Italian twist, others are more industrial work horses. I guess I like them, though it’s not exactly easy to install a sconce on a whim. I wonder if those who are incorporating them into current projects will feel like they’re trendy/dated in a couple of years. Time will tell. In the meantime, I like them, even if they look like they might reach out and grab you.
